About the piece
Donkey Kong (Miyamoto, et. al.,1981) was the first appearance of the Itallian plumber we now know as Mario. While this game’s early ’80s arcade popularity predates most of today’s engineering students, it represents the amazing results that a small development team can produce. Today Donkey Kong is ranked as the 3rd most popular arcade game of all time, selling over 65,000 units.

Currently this work is visible at the E2 building at UCSC, it is scheduled to be removed on or before May 1.

Total Number of Post-It® Notes: about 6400

Total People: about 10

Total Time: 5 hours

    That’s very cool. I’d like to see more childhood memories recreated in post-it note form.
